Romy is hugely passionate about helping others especially those suffering or needing support with mental health issues.
Using her title as Miss International 2016/2017, and her own experience, she wants to empower people to seek help, support and guidance and bring awareness to mental health in all aspect of life.
“My goal is to help the services that Dorset Mind offers people in our local area. I would like to raise the platform of the Dorset Mind services which are offered to children, teenagers and young adults.”
“Through my early teenage years I found it most challenging to talk to people about my eating disorder. Having being through it, and having defeated it with the support of local agencies, friends and family I want to be there as a friendly face for any young person who wants to come to discuss their worries or concerns.”
“I believe that with the help of a positive mind-set you can conquer anything, but sometimes you just need that bit of extra guidance to help you through, and that’s where I want to offer my support.”
Romy coordinates our Restored Eating Disorder support for Adult Services. She is also training to become a counsellor.
